Vent Post: Telemarketers And The Cell Phone
- 3 Comment
Gosh it’s pissing me off! If you didn’t know already, our cell phone numbers have recently been released to telemarketing companies.
How is this financially related?
I have a cell phone under a prepaid plan. I pay $1/day for unlimited web surfing and texts and each minute costs $0.15.
Many would just tell me not to pick up if you do not recognize the number. But what if it was the credit card company calling regarding something important or if it was an emergency from a different number. No one can ever know for sure.
I’ve been getting these calls about 10 times a week and it is wasting my minutes along with being a major pain in the ass.
I’ve registered my number with the National Do Not Call Registry on July 31st but it states:
Most telemarketers should not call your number once it has been on the registry for 31 days.
Still got a week or so for it to take full effect, so it says. I’ll probably still get some calls. It is just so annoying. It’s like having a hole in your pant pocket where you keep your coins.
